Emotion Sickness

Album: Neon Ballroom (1999)


  • This song is about the emotional disorders going on in someone's head. A 6-minute orchestral piece, it is not typical of Silverchair's work, but is a fan favorite and one of the songs the band is most proud of. It's the first track on the album. >>
